Shakespeare was a stoner! What else could you determine from it? After all, look how creative he was.

Remember, back when The Beatles wrote Sergeant Pepper—one of the greatest rock albums of all time—they all admitted they did it on LSD. So, I think the use of certain substances with certain people does help to bring out their creativity.

I think Shakespeare was a stoner. Look how creative and beloved his is. Only someone smoking weed could be as creative as he was.
